Project Highlights

Natural Resource Management and National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) Compliance Support for Large DoD Installations

For nearly a decade, Redhorse has been performing National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) compliance by providing long-term natural and cultural resources, and Geographical Information System (GIS) support for large Department of Defense (DoD) installations including: The National Training Center (NTC) Fort Irwin, Edwards Air Force Base (AFB), the Hawthorne Army Depot (HWAD), the Naval Air Weapons Station China Lake, and the Joint Readiness Training Center (JRTC) Fort Polk. Under these contracts, we have undertaken hundreds of environmental resource regulatory compliance projects.

We have developed well-defined field, lab, data management, and GIS protocols to program manage efficiently and with consistent methods. We optimize technology by pursuing efforts to keep pace with evolving technologies and practices while maintaining contemporary knowledge of new sensors, software, remote sensing platforms, and industry practices, which we successfully implement for our customers.

The National Training Center at Fort Irwin encompasses approximately 755,000 acres of the Mojave Desert and is home to six known flora/fauna and threatened, endangered or sensitive species (TES), as well as over 1,600 known cultural resources. Our multi-disciplinary team produced the Environmental Assessment (EA) for the updated 2016-2020 Integrated Cultural Resources Management Plan (ICRMP). Redhorse continues to support the development and implementation of the Fort Irwin ICRMP as well as the Integrated Natural Resources Management Plan (INRMP).

Edwards Air Force Base (AFB) consists of approximately 308,000 acres located in the Mojave Desert.  Redhorse has been providing environmental resources support to Edwards AFB since 2016. Redhorse provides environmental regulatory compliance support activities necessary to support the AF and AFCEC environmental mission requirements at Edwards AFB through the Edwards Air Force Fence to Fence (F2F) contract. Our multi-disciplinary team supports the development and implementation of the Edwards AFB INRMP and ICRMP.

Hawthorne Army Depot is a US Army ammunition storage depot that covers 147,000 acres, located in Western Nevada. Redhorse has provided environmental services to Hawthorne Army Depot (HWAD) since 2009. This service includes preparing documents for Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) permit modifications; conducting air admission inventories and impact analysis in compliance with the Clean Air Act; and developing risk characterization.
